Tips : Accommodation

Which are the best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Minsk, Belarus? There’s plenty of choice within the Marriott brand including top brands like the Luxury Collection, EDITION, St Regis, W Hotels, and JW Marriott as well as mid-range brands like their Autograph Collection, Renaissance, Sheraton, Le Meridien, Design Hotels and their Westin collections.

The best Marriott Bonvoy hotels in Minsk, Belarus are listed below and are at the top of our listing of the best luxury hotels in Minsk. Neither the Renaissance or the Marriott is well located for the city-center or within walking distance of most of the sites. The Marriott is actually a long way from the center although it does offer lovely river views and is lovely and modern. The Renaissance is marginally better, next to the train station, but is not ideal either. The best-located hotels in Minsk are the more boutique ones that aren’t part of a chain.

1. Minsk Marriott

The new Minsk Marriott Hotel is a Rewards Category 3 hotel with sophisticated accommodation, outstanding service in the captivating capital city of Belarus. We like this hotel as it is new and stylish with great views.

This Marriott is conveniently situated close to the city center, steps away from both the main exhibition center and exciting Minsk Arena. Many hotel rooms and suites offer private balconies with river views, and all boast free Wi-Fi and luxurious bedding.

Savor a meal at Fornello, our signature restaurant, or sample a hand-crafted cocktail as you nibble on tapas at the Barrel Bar or try the spa.

The executive lounge can be found on the ground floor and is open from 6:30-23:00. Breakfast is 6:30-11:00 and alcoholic drinks, soft drinks beverage, hors d’oeuvres, and evening desserts are from 17:00-19:00. The look of the lounge is really stylish with cafe tables and chunky marble surfaces offering a good selection of foods.

In the morning there is bread, pastries, muffins, soft drinks, bottled water, juices, and a coffee machine. You have plenty of choice in cereals, plus there are two hot options which include eggs. There are also cold cuts and cheeses as well as smoked salmon and other smoked fish.

In the evening, you can enjoy bottled beers, wines, and spirits along with light bites.

2. Renaissance Minsk

The Renaissance Minsk Hotel in Belarus is a Rewards Category 2 Marriott Bonvoy hotel. Marriott Minsk is part of an extensive new sports and entertainment development located approximately four kilometers from Minsk city center.

The complex provides a wide range of leisure facilities including an excellent 20-meter swimming pool, squash courts, tennis courts, massage rooms, fitness center, bowling alley, and cinema. The hotel itself has two restaurants, a lobby lounge bar, a cigar bar, and a nightclub.

Guests find themselves within walking distance of the Gates of Minsk. Admittedly, the location is not ideal as you need to take a taxi or walk 1-2 miles to most of the central sights, but there is a free shuttle to downtown meetings or attractions. The hotel is also near Minsk-Arena.

Modern rooms and suites feature generous layouts, plush bedding, marble bathrooms, workstations, free Wi-Fi, and TVs with multilingual channels. Upgrade to a deluxe room or suite to enjoy Executive Lounge amenities.

The Executive club lounge at the Renaissance Minsk Hotel in Belarus is fairly decent and there have been reports that breakfast is served in the main restaurant as well as the club lounge. The breakfast in the restaurant is the better choice. There is hot and cold food in the evening and also free wine and beer until 10 pm, as well as, of course, snacks and soft drinks out throughout the day.
